Currently unknown

Cheek Pouch (Japanese: ほおぶくろ Cheek Pouch) is an Ability introduced in Generation VI. Three Pokémon can have this Ability.


In battle

Cheek Pouch restores 33% of the Pokémon's maximum HP when it consumes a Berry, after the effect of the Berry is applied.

Cheek Pouch activates even if the Pokémon eats another Pokémon's held Berry via Bug Bite, Pluck or Fling, but only if the Berry is actually eaten for an effect (i.e. the Berry consumption animation plays). Consuming a Berry through other means (such as Natural Gift, using Fling, or its Trainer giving it a Berry from the Bag) will not trigger Cheek Pouch.

Outside of battle

It is unknown if Cheek Pouch has an effect outside of battle.
